I have just been doing some checking on how up to date Navionics
keeps its charts
and have found mine to be well out of date. I checked some recent Notices to Mariners and found they had not been applied, so started checking earlier ones. I have not found any from the last 2 years to have been applied.
2 years out of date!!!
So I tried downloading the area again only to get the message "You already have the maximum amount of detail available for the area". So I did a fresh installation
on a new device and downloaded charts
again .... still out of date.
Perhaps it's just the particicular package I bought "Asia and Africa
HD". When I purchased these in 2012, Australia
was included as well. Now it isn't, and if you want Australia
you need to buy a different package.
Can someone who has the Australian charts please check to see if they have been updated. An easy to check example is from December 2012 at Three Hut Point in Tasmania:
The fixed light on shore has been replaced by a flashing light nearby.
I suggest anyone with these Navionics
charts should check if updates have been applied. The Navionics stand at the boat show
said they were right up to date, and these corrections would be automatically applied as an update to the app.
I have posted a support question to Navionics but that was almost 3 weeks ago and still no response other than giving a reference number.
